Make Your Own Kids Adventure Pack

This post is sponsored by Children’s Allegra and SheKnows Media.

We’ve been traveling like crazy this month and with every new kids adventure comes a new onslaught of allergies for my kids. Especially my boy is very prone sneezing and itching whenever we visit a new place. Everything seems to affect him. We try hard though not to have things like allergies stop us from enjoying all the kids adventure ideals we hold dear like exploring and fully experiencing a place.

I’m partnering with Children’s Allegra® Allergy Relief to share a few tips we’ve learned along the way for combating our kids allergies while we prioritize kids adventure trips for learning and exploring together. Allegra helps me feel confident that my kid’s allergies will be in control so they can enjoy our vacation and weekend adventure to the max!

Kids Adventure Tips

1. Explore every new place

From jumping into streams to running through flowers – there are some experiences that are worth dealing with what comes. With Children’s Allegra I can make the decision for us if the event is worth the sneezes and know that relief is close at hand. As a parent, I never want my kids to suffer, but I also don’t want them to miss out on an amazing kids adventure that they might only get to enjoy once in a lifetime.

2. Make a kids adventure pack

As spring comes in full force, I like to be sure we are stocked up on all the right precautions we need. We’ve created a little kids adventure pack that is filled with everything we need for the crazy roads ahead. Bandaids, a shaken ice pack, Children’s Allegra® Allergy Relief, paper and pencils for impromptu sketching and hidden sweets for when we really an energy boost. I use this DIY felt bag and it’s a small enough pack that I can fit it in my purse on the go, but has enough stuff that we know we will be okay for the road.

3. Have a soundtrack for the fun

I find my kids are always less nervous and have more fun when we have the right music playing. It’s crazy to me how much their little minds and bodies respond to tone. Whenever we set out for a big weekend adventure, I try to find a few great songs to carry along the way. Playing them as we get ready to leave, when we are in the car and again as they are adventuring outside works like magic to get everyone comfortable and having fun.

Also, whenever the songs come on after our kids adventure it always reminds us of what we did together, which is so sweet and fun.

Mostly though the best tip I have it to just keep active. There’s no way to protect our kids from all the things and as parents we need to decide which priorities we will run after. Whether it’s throwing kid filled parties, or adventuring on vacation I tend to choose the experience over the fear. Giving our kids adventure ideals at a young age will serve them well as they grow older. What is your stance on adventuring ideas with the kids?

  1. Getting out and going on adventures is important for kids to do. Having Allegra is great to have when your kids have allergies.

  2. I’m not very adventurous. My son has bad allergies and in the spring it’s hard for him to play outside too long when everyone is mowing the grass. I’ll give Allegra a try.

  3. We love getting out and enjoying nature and it teaches kids so much and keeps them active and healthy.

  4. My kids love hiking and camping, allergies prevent them to enjoy sometimes. We would love to give Allegra a try.

  5. I totally support going on adventures with kids. Being active improves their healthy and I would much rather them spend time outdoors than sitting inside indoors playing video games.

  6. I love adventuring. I have so many memories of getting outside when I was younger, so I am hoping to do the same for my kids.

  7. We love to bring our kids hiking. We’ll point out different plants, flowers, birds, bugs, etc. My husband was a scout for years and is very knowledgeable about the outdoors. We find that hiking is great for family time together, with no distractions. Thanks so much.

  8. We love getting outside as a family for camping and horse back riding! Great family fun! Thank you

  9. We like to go on long nature hikes with the kids. We even make our own field guides of the things we’ve seen on our hikes!

  10. Yes walking in the woods trying to identify flowers, trees etc – how we like spending some of our time with the kids.
    thank you

  11. Adventuring with kids is such a good idea. It gets them away from technology and out in the fresh air and a chance to really make a memory.

  12. I love to bring the dog on adventures with the kids. They are getting older and too cool for mom but they love watching the dog have her own adventures!

  13. I agree with encouraging kids to be adventurous and curious about the world. I have bad allergies, so I wonder if my daughter will have the same issues, but with an Adventure Pack, we should be ok!

  14. Getting outside helps promote exercise, and discovery. It also helps my son and I to connect with each other.

  15. I adventure with the kids as often as possible. Hopefully, one day they will look back on our adventures and smile about them.

  16. We’ve just started taking adventures. It’s about time for another one but Hubby is working a ton. We’ve all got to get together and see where we want to go next. Thank you!

  17. I think adventure experiences are so important. They are some of my favorite memories of the summer, and I hope my kids will have some, too! Allegra is a lifesaver!

  18. We love doing adventures with our daughter. We love doing everything from zip lining to the kids mud run to the indoor flying place

  19. Love that you are getting your kids outside and away from technology but also promoting and encouraging other parents to do the same!

  20. we definitely take safety into consideration but we want to make sure that we’re doing fun and somewhat challenging activities

  21. I think it’s so important to expose your kids to different things/adventures when they’re growing up. We like to travel somewhere new every year if possible.

  22. My boys are very adventurous, and I encourage them to always be that way. But they both suffer with allergies.

  23. We love to adventure on our 200 acre farm. We find something new with each hike. Sometimes allergies flare up but not often.

  24. My stance on adventuring ideas with the kids has always been to get out there with them and do fun things. It is tougher the older they get but we still try to do as much as possible.

  25. I think we’re all just a bunch of grown up kids…..our whole family loves to get away whenever we can and explore new places.

  26. Just getting them outside and doing something rather than being glued to an electronic device is the best thing about the whole idea.

  27. My kids love going out on adventures, through the woods or just something local they love learning new things with excitement. I say as long as it’s safe, let them at it!

  28. We love to get outdoors when we can as a family! My kids love to ride bikes and go camping. We enjoy making memories together that will last forever.

  29. what makes it easier for us is to make sure the kids have stuff to do while in the car for long periods of time.

  30. Thanks to Allegra my son and I can enjoy hiking, geocaching and swimming. We enjoy being outside all Summer long.

  31. I’m trying really hard to teach my daughter how to be independent and strong by encouraging her to explore and try things as much as possible. Sometimes when I see her hanging upside down from the jungle gym I get super nervous but then I remember that I did that in my childhood and I think it made me cautious when needed but also allowed me to have fun. It’s so tough to know the balance between keeping them safe and letting them try things but I’m working on it!

    • I can completely understand that! I was just watching my daughter last night on the bars and felt the same thing! It’s so good & so hard!

  32. I love having adventures with my family. Being outdoors and experiencing nature and enjoying activities together is always a great idea.

  33. We enjoy getting outside during the warm summer days! My kids love camping and hiking whenever we can get away! It’s nice to keep allergy medicine for when allergies flare up.

  34. I think being adventurous can help build confidence. We love to do adventures like hiking places we have never been and things like that!

  35. I love taking my grandsons out for a different adventure every weekend! We have had so much fun exploring the lakes and countryside!

  36. Love taking my girls on little adventures. My youngest has asthma and allergy problems so Allegra is a life saver.

  37. My son and I love being outside. Fishing, hiking, finding different “critters” and exploring new places are some of our favorites!

  38. My mom used to almost force us to go to the beach, mountains around here but now i thank her for encouraging us to be one with nature lol now i find myself taking our little one to all natures wonders that California has to offer!
